What Happens When We Die? Scientists Say The Soul Returns To The Universe

The reason why so many of us are afraid of death is that we just don't understand it. We can't prepare for what we don't know and the unknown is scary that way. So we keep asking ourselves: “what happens to us after we die?”.

While usually, we try to answer that question spiritually, it seems like science has now found the answer. UK scientist Dr. Sam Parnia believes human consciousness lives on even after we die. He shared his findings in Morgan Freeman’s Netflix show “The story of God.” Here's what he, along with other leading scientists have found.

What If We Actually Lived On Forever?

Dr. Parnia is not alone in his theories. After extensive research, the University of Arizona’s Stuart Hameroff and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose also believe that while our bodies physically die, our soul, or what they refer to as "consciousness" lives on forever.

Scientists are starting to find that the soul is made of information that can be stored at a quantum level. It's those quantum mechanisms, or the behavior of matter, that make the infinite process possible.

Consciousness Is Just Stored

Dr. Hameroff and Dr. Roger have concluded that the soul and its consciousness are simply made of stored information. Think of the conscious mind as a program on a computer. Even if the computer itself dies, the program itself can be transferred and continue to exist.

This way of thinking is what has led them to say that even after human beings die, their soul comes back to the universe, and it does not die itself.

The idea of the brain as a biological computer that can store the information that makes us who we are is not a new idea. But it's the understanding that this means that the soul it holds doesn't die either is groundbreaking.

This knowledge has been in the making since 1996. Dr. Hameroff, the American Physicist who works in the departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology, and Sir Penrose, the mathematical physicist at Oxford University, have been working hard to solve these theories for decades. Their work is based on the "Quantum Theory of Consciousness." The theory believes that the soul is maintained in brain cells.

The Soul Exits The Body Upon Death, But Doesn't Die

Dr. Parnia tells Morgan Freeman in his documentary that “The evidence we have is that when a person dies, that part that makes us who we are – the soul or mind, or whatever you call it – it does not become annihilated."

But how this happens can be a bit complicated. It's all based on what they call "Orchestrated Objective Reduction" which is how the information is transferred over. Basically right when the heart stops beating and the blood stops flowing, the information that makes a person can't be destroyed, so it just gets distributed into the universe at large.

The Beyond Is An Infinite Reality

Researchers are now claiming that there is an infinite universe beyond after death. This is where the soul continues to live forever when it is spread from the body. They also say that this world we're living in is just a perception or a reality that we've created for ourselves to give our lives a beginning and an end. The soul itself never ends.

The documentary explains it like this: “What we consider the here and now, this world, it is actually just the material level...The beyond is an infinite reality that is much bigger.” Believing this is accepting that the soul runs on a deeper level that goes beyond this world.

Near Death Experiences Put It In Perspective

Dr. Sam Parnia has studied more than 100 cases of cardiac arrest survivors. These are people who have technically died and came back to life. What's really interesting about them is that a big number of them had really weird experiences when they died. They came back often feeling more at peace, comforted, and even happy after they went through death. It's like dying and coming back to life somehow gave them a profound and mystical experience. Some of them even felt like they met up with other loved ones who had previously died.

The scientists think this means that death is a universal experience so all the souls go to the same place after they leave their physical bodies. But in near-death experiences, if a person comes back, the information of their soul, or their consciousness, comes back with them.

Since The Beginning Of Time

So what does it mean to have a soul? From a scientific perspective, it's an interaction of neurons but from a spiritual perspective, it's our whole being and the good and the bad that create our identity.

But, even now science is also saying that the soul is something more than neurons, and it's actually a consciousness that has existed since the beginning of time and will continue to live on forever.

The World's Oldest Person Just Turned 119, But What's Fascinating Is How She Spends Her Days

The oldest person in the world just recently celebrated her 119th birthday in a nursing home in southwestern Japan. Now if you're picturing an immobile old lady who does nothing bt spend her days in bed, think again. This woman may be at the end of her days, but she is still full of life.

The way that she spends her every day should be an inspiration to all of us that we're never too old to put in the effort everyday to live it to the fullest. After all, what's the point in living if we don't actually feel alive? Here's how she does it.

She Has Watched The Whole World Change

When you've lived almost a century and a quarter long, you're bound to probably feel like you're in your own science fiction movie by the end. The world has drastically changed over the years. When Kane Tanaka was born, in 1903 in Japan, life was much simpler. This was the same year that the Wright brothers powered their first flight. Kane grew up around her nine siblings before she married a rice shop owner when she turned 19 years old.

Since then she has lived through wonders including two world wars, two pandemics, the rise of technologies, and more life changes than we could possibly imagine.

Today, Her Routine Is Quite Unique

​Just because she has lived a long and meaningful life, doesn't mean that she's done living each day to the fullest. What's really fascinating about Kane's long life is the way that she chooses to live every day.

It turns out that even at her nursing home, Kane wakes up every morning bright and early at 6 a.m. and spends part of her day studying mathematics. She keeps her mind sharp and alert by spending the day solving number puzzles and playing board games. She has gotten so good at this that in 2019, she became an expert in the game of Othello, a strategy board game, even beating the nursing home's younger staff.

She Has Broken New Records

Kane is now part of the Guinness World Records and has been since turned 117 and became Japan's oldest living person. On her birthday, Guinness even tweeted her a happy birthday and shared a video of her from 2019, when she was officially given the title.

Unfortunately, while Kane has adapted to much of the modern world, she hasn't made it as far as setting her own Twitter account to reply. Nonetheless, everyone who saw the tweet was inspired by her will to live as well as the way she chooses to live.

She's Got The Right Attitude

Tanaka sounds like a delightful woman who emits all kinds of positive vibes. Her personality exceeds her intelligence and love for math because just like the average person, Tanaka also shares a strong love for fizzy drinks and chocolate. In fact, when she was gifted a box of chocolates during her Guinness ceremony, someone asked her how many chocolates she wanted to eat, she replied, "100." And why shouldn't she? When you've lived that long there is no reason not to indulge and maximize life's little pleasures.

Tanaka carried the same attitude when she was crowned Japan's oldest person at 117 and celebrated with a coke. Tanaka's positivity is radiant and comes across in all her gestures. When she was sent flowers on Respect for the Aged Day, she expressed her gratitude by making a peace sign.

Maybe Chocolate Is The Key

Tanaka has another three years to go until she breaks the all-time record for the oldest person that has lived, which right now is held by Jeanne Louise Calment from France, who lived to 122 years. Currently, she holds the record for the world's oldest currently living person since Jeanne has since passed.

What's interesting about these two women is their love for their chocolate. They say that Jeanne ate two pounds of chocolate a week! Could chocolate be the new fountain of youth? The answer is probably in how these two women carried themselves in their youth and the way they're able to see the good in the everyday. However, Japan is known to hold one of the longevity rates in the world which have increased significantly in the last 60 years.
